All in All

It’s a hole in the wall

Where the lost boys live

It’s a kingdom steeped in food stamps

Where the lost boys live

 

On the Astroturf verge

In a desert of suburbia

It’s a broken-curfew oasis

Where the lost boys live

 

In an asylum-white classroom

Under gum-studded desks

It’s a Tippex-scrawled defiance

Where the lost boys live

 

Inside prep-school blazers

Grasping a silk-noose tie

It’s on the honours roll wall

Where the lost boys die
